Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v5.2.0 and the Dragonhold DLC Game Pack, featuring the conclusion of the Season of the Dragon! Dragonhold introduces not only the new zone of Southern Elsweyr, but also adds two world bosses, two delves, and new Dragon Hunt areas (complete with fearsome Frost and Storm Dragons). We’ve also added several new collectibles, item sets, achievements, and titles for you to acquire.

The base game introduces our updated Activity Finder for dungeons and Battlegrounds, and also focuses heavily on the first part of the performance improvements for ESO with an overhaul of how memory is managed. Along with updating 3-piece item sets, you’ll find we’ve made several improvements to Wardens, Sorcerers, and Dragonknights in the realm of identity, adjusted some values of Damage over Time abilities, and more.

We’ve copied all PC/Mac North American characters, and have also supplied a max-level character template to explore Southern Elsweyr. We hope you enjoy this latest update, which is approximately 4.4GB, and can’t wait to read your feedback!

    Developer Comment:
    Due to many of the current targeting issues with corpses and tether abilities, we are allowing Shocking Siphon and its morphs, as well as Restoring Tether and its morphs, to bypass the global cooldown. We are currently working on alternative methods to improve the targeting for these abilities, as well as improving the reliability of created corpses and their durations, but are not ready to implement them quite yet. We’re aware of the frustrating nature of attempting to use these abilities, which is why we have added a small stop-gap measure in the meantime until we can properly solve the issue.
    • Grave Lord
      • Boneyard: Increased the base cost of this ability and its morphs to 4950, up from 3780, and decreased the damage per tick by approximately 33%.
      • Frozen Colossus: This ability and its morphs will now only apply Major Vulnerability to enemies hit by the final smash, rather than any enemy. This will reduce the total duration to 3 seconds, down from 5.
      • Shocking Siphon: Decreased the damage per tick of this ability and its morphs by approximately 33%.
      • Skeletal Mage: Decreased the damage per hit of this ability and its morphs by 50%.
    • Bone Tyrant
      • Bone Goliath Transformation:
        • Pummeling Goliath (morph): Fixed an issue where activating the special Bash attack from this morph would not turn your character to face the direction you cast it in.

    Achievements
    • Updated the names and descriptions of several dragon-related achievements to better distinguish them from new Dragonhold achievements.
